They are being imposed at a time when technological advances are blurring the distinction between work and home, making the traditional 40-hour week seem an illusion. There has been a lot of controversy recently about employees not getting paid for all the hours they have worked, but there are often good reasons why people choose to work extra hours, including a desire to develop their career. Most cases of underpayment are unlikely to have been deliberate.
